That was your tip.
It means you are not getting a tip, but the pax is acknowledging you. Probably comes often with the banker handshake.
I used to work in a job where my co workers and I spent about 25% of our time on the road.I try and avoid saying "safe travels" to people but do on occasion
That usually means they noticed the large metal safe in your back seat and they're reminding your that you're "driving a safe." The modern vernacular just sounds like they're "drive safe." Y'all know how slang can be. You can leave the safe at home or place it in your trunk and the problem will be solved in a jiffy. That means "resolved with a jar of Jif peanut butter."
Hope it's better than me careening swiftly towards a red light without stopping because I had a brief moment of dead air in my head, then immediately realize what I am doing and punch the brakes to launch a passenger's White Castle soda onto my floor.Speaking of.... I am super aware as I am driving the pax and I really focus and incorporate defensive driving into the mix. I really take pride in doing this gig well even if it does kinda suck A LOT. lol With that said, I have made some mistakes which I know caused fear in the pax and on those occasions I apologized but I did not give an excuse like I was tired or anything. Mistakes happen....oh well...but.. Did you die??? lol
Hummmmmmm... reminds me of a song I once heard... Paranoia strikes deep, into your life it will creep, starts when your always afraid... Oh the memories come flooding back...
That photograph reminds me of an off-topic story. I was driving across Pennsylvania once on the turnpike, and I went through a tunnel. As I came out of the tunnel, there was one of those yellow caution signs on the side of the road. I couldn't see it very well because the sun was in a position where there was a lot of glare, so I was struggling to read it. Once I made it out, it turns out that it just said "DRIVE SAFELY" or something like that. No useful information. While I was trying to read the sign, traffic in front of me had slowed down a lot for some reason and I almost ran into the car in front of me. I'm exaggerating a bit. It wasn't terribly close, but I had to brake fairly hard to slow down. I found it ironic that I almost had an accident because I was distracted by the "DRIVE SAFELY" sign.
